Iberian Peninsula’s geothermal energy can generate current electrical capacity five times over

The temperature increases by 30 ºC for every kilometre further underground. This thermal gradient, generated by the flow of heat from the inside of Earth and the breakdown of radioactive elements in the crust, produces geothermal power. About 500 power stations around the world already use it to generate electricity, although there are yet to … Continue reading Iberian Peninsula’s geothermal energy can generate current electrical capacity five times over

Denmark, Portugal, and Spain Leading the World in Wind Power

Denmark produced one third of its electricity from the wind in 2013. In no other country has wind’s share of annual electricity generation yet topped 30 percent. But the Danes are not stopping there—they are eyeing a goal of 50 percent wind by 2020, with most of the needed expansion coming from offshore wind farms. … Continue reading Denmark, Portugal, and Spain Leading the World in Wind Power
